Donald Trump has been in office for just six months, but new research by the US Studies Centre shows he’s already influenced Australia’s perceptions of the US, reports.

A survey of 4703 people across six countries by the Asian Research Network looked at the role of the US in the region and found overall perceptions of the country declined compared to the year before.

It found the United States’ perceived influence has taken a huge dive among her allies including Australia, Japan and Korea.

Researchers quizzed six Asian-Pacific nations one month after the election of Donald Trump to see how much influence they believe the US has across the region.
